Lean digitisation is an innovative approach that combines the concepts of lean methodology and process-centric digital capabilities, for harnessing the full potential of operational transformation.

It is a modern, efficient way of approaching business operations, and it has proven to be highly effective across multiple industries and sectors, including retail, IT/ITES, shared services, GCCs, manufacturing, healthcare, hospitality, aviation, telecom, power, BFSI, and e-commerce.

    Lean principles provide a proven, customer-centric approach to process improvement and operational excellence. By eliminating waste and simplifying processes, organisations can focus on what really matters to the customer, leading to standard, structured, and stable processes that drive success. This customer-centric approach has been proven to deliver tangible results, and it is being adopted by businesses of all sizes and across all industries.

    Organisations are constantly seeking ways to improve their digital capabilities. One way to achieve this is by transforming data into action through insights, and then using the insights gained to make strategic decisions and drive business growth.

    Transforming data into action has far-reaching benefits from improved customer engagement and satisfaction to increased efficiency and profitability. Organisations can also stay ahead of the curve by anticipating customer needs and preferences by creating data-driven strategies that respond to the changing needs of their customers.

Our differentiators

Combining the power of stable processes with the agility of digital operations can bring significant improvements to an organisation's metrics. Despite this, many organisations struggle to realise the benefits of digital transformation due to legacy technology, complex processes, and resistance to change.

We understand the challenges faced by organisations and offer a solution that integrates end-to-end operations with digital transformation techniques. Our goal is to help organisations not only transform, but also exceed their standards by building performance excellence into their value chain processes.

Our offerings

Value chain analysis 

We look at the value chain from the outside-in perspective, questioning even the existence of the process. This allows us to identify areas for improvement and recommend simplifications using digital capabilities. By embracing digital technologies, organisations can streamline their processes, increase efficiency, and ultimately improve the effectiveness of their value chain.

Process optimisation and change management 

We offer a comprehensive solution that includes not only identifying areas for improvement in the value chain but also implementing mutually agreed digital solutions. Our approach to change management ensures effective adherence to the new and improved value chain, with a focus on delivering value to stakeholders.

Our approach

Understanding the value chain

We take a comprehensive approach to understand the value chain. Our team uses GEMBA tools to observe the process and gather data on how it is performed. We also interview the process owners to gain insight into any exceptions, assumptions, and escalations that may occur. This helps us to identify areas of improvement and determine the root cause of any issue.

Analyse the value chain

We analyse the process to identify any redundancies, unnecessary complexities, and opportunities in the complete value chain by using multiple approaches of lean methodology.

Recommendations for improvement

Based on our extensive industry expertise and focus on leadership, we provide recommendations to simplify and strengthen the value chain, making it more agile and responsive to the ever-changing expectations of stakeholders.

Implementation support

Our support includes guidance and assistance in implementing mutually agreed solutions aimed at focused growth and achieving target Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
